When you learn that the world’s best fish and chips are only a short ferry ride away, you immediately make lunch plans. Doyles on the Beach has been a Sydney establishment since opening its doors in 1885 as Australia’s first seafood restaurant. Family owned and operated for five generations, more than just a restaurant, Doyles is a piece of history I knew I could not miss.
With the afternoon to myself, I took the ferry from Circular Quay and quickly arrived at Watsons Bay, but not before I had the chance to snap some amazing photos of Sydney Harbor.
Arriving at Watsons Bay was calm and quiet. The surrounding area was a picture perfect seaside town. Before long, I found signs pointing me in the right direction, to Doyles!
While Doyles offers a full menu and plenty of options to choose from, you would be a fool to not indulge in the fish and chips! I was in the mood for a leisurely lunch, reviewing photos and reminiscing about my amazing week in Sydney, so I opted to start with the scallops (yum!) and then enjoyed the famous dish with a glass (or two) of Australian white wine. The fish and chips lived up to the hype, the perfect combination of crispy crust and fresh fish, with a view!
I spent the rest of the afternoon admiring the bay, editing photos, and daydreaming about my next trip to Australia.
Open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week, with both indoor and outdoor dining, make sure to fit Doyles on the Beach into your plans the next time you visit Sydney.
